Corporate Democrats have made it known that although progressive candidates represent the views of the majority of Democratic voters on a number of high-priority issues including healthcare and the climate crisis, the party leadership will continue to marginalize progressives in the 2020 congressional elections—angering groups including the Justice Democrats and Our Revolution.

The US could lose its crown as the world's most powerful economy as soon as next year, and it's unlikely to ever get it back
The United States of America could lose its position as the world's biggest economy as soon as next year — and once that happens, it is unlikely to regain the top spot as developing Asian economies power ahead.According to research released this week by Standard Chartered Bank, China is likely to become the world's biggest economy at some point in 2020

I love how rightwingers eat his shit up though, "immigrants take our jobs and unemployment sucks, they hurt wages" but they're also OK with that new over time rule that Orban introduced that let's employers demand up to an extra day a week from their employees, same with the general right wing opinion on welfare and the minimum wage, as though wages don't compete with these sources of income, or that the lazy scrounger who was sitting on his arse is now competing for your job for less money.

France’s govt exaggerates Yellow Vest threat to justify measures of political repression
The early XX century French monarchist philosopher, Charles Maurras, wrote: “The Republic is bad at governing but good at defending itself.” Seldom have these words seemed more true than during the Gilets Jaunes protests.I live right in the heart of Paris, overlooking the Prime Minister’s office, Hôtel Matignon, and a short distance from the scenes of some of the violence witnessed last Saturday. Ever since the Yellow Vests started to demonstrate at the beginning of December, I have seen, just outside my own front door, the massive police presence defending the seat of government while leaving the rest of the city, and indeed the rest of the country, to the mercy of rioters.Cars were burned only a few streets away from where the serried ranks of the CRS (special police) were scrupulously preventing pedestrians from walking to the shops, while the ministry whose gate was smashed in with a fork-lift truck on Saturday is only five minutes’ walk away

Trump’s “national emergency” threat and the danger of presidential dictatorship
In the wake of President Trump’s nationally televised address Tuesday night, the political axis of the conflict over the border wall, which has led to the partial shutdown of the federal government, has clearly shifted. White House officials, including Trump himself, are openly threatening to declare a national emergency, under which Trump would assume quasi-dictatorial powers and use the US military to carry out his political objectives, including building the wall.In any other country, such an assumption of unchecked power by the chief executive would be described as rule by decree or an outright coup d’état. But in the United States, the complacent media and the compliant “opposition” party make no warnings and offer no resistance. In their official response to Trump Tuesday night, neither House Speaker Nancy Pelosi nor Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said anything about the declaration of a national emergency, although Trump began hinting at it last week.

Abolishing ICE, By Funding It?
Has anybody ever described what "abolishing ICE" actually means? Before ICE, the exact same people were doing the exact same things under the INS since the 1930s. Short of abolishing the borders and admitting billions of economic migrants, that's not going to change.
France’s govt exaggerates Yellow Vest threat to justify measures of political repression
Reminds me of the "state of emergency" that extended clear from Hollande most of the way through Macron's reign. Any chance of revolts within the police or military?

The "'right" to be 'forgotten'" is an utterly retarded, technically unworkable trojan horse for censorship and legal harassment. The EU has done some good things in this area, like forcing Steam to offer refunds and forcing dataminers to tell individuals what data they've been collecting if requested, but this is NOT one of those good things.

Given Orban's anti-immigration rhetoric, combined with Hungary's currently strong labor market and lack of outsourcing threat, it seems like right now would be the perfect time for strikes and unionization drives.

That's just not true. Oh, I'm sure things could have been much worse, but what happened was still pretty fucking bad by any reasonable standard.

There was plenty of "shock treatment" (better called engineered social disasters, like disbanding of collective farms that left millions of people without means of subsistence), and I'm not sure how slow creeping destruction of industry and public services is any better. The end result is the same.

That's not what this is. It's search engines indexing information that was knowingly posted to publicly accessible clearnet sites, and retards getting butthurt when they want to DELETE FUCKING EVERYTHING and can't force the sites hosting it to delete it. Or at least that's the cover story, since someone somewhere will always be hosting such material. What it REALLY really is, is a legal mechanism for external enemies to strongarm search engines into capitulating to censorship, and a fig leaf for search engines themselves to justify censorship and other algorithmic scale-tipping they want to do.
